YA & NA Sapphic Recs

Hello and welcome to my Young Adult and New Adult sapphic rec list! This is not a complete list at all but I've included a variety of titles, authors and genres and will periodically add to this as and when I come across more books! Contemporary, historical and fantasy all have their own little section (SF is combined with fantasy) and each list is organised alphabetically by author last name. If adult romance is more what you're looking for then you can check out my other rec list here! 

Disclaimer: I created these rec lists entirely by myself and therefore any mistakes are mine. If you know that a specific author / book is missing please fill in this form and  I will add them when I next update the rec list.
